Global PC shipments increased by 32% in the first quarter
According to Gartner’s preliminary survey results in April, global PC shipments totaled 69.9 million units in the first quarter of 2021. An increase of 32% over the first quarter of 2020.
Jitesh Ubrani, research manager of IDC, another market research organization said: The unmet demand in the past year continued into the first quarter and the additional demand from the pandemic continues to drive sales. However, the market continues to suffer setbacks. Including parts shortages and logistics issues, these factors have caused the average selling price to rise.
Mikako Kitagawa said: Without shipment chaos at the beginning of 2020, growth in this quarter may decrease. However, semiconductor shortages have once again adversely affected the supply chain. Moreover, the delivery time of some PCs extended to less than four months. For a long time.” Gartner Research Director.
Gartner warned that shipment growth should be considered from the perspective of two unique factors. Comparison with pandemic-restricted markets and the current global semiconductor shortage.
However, Gartner and IDC are still cautiously optimistic that PC demand may remain strong.
Beichuan said: “Even after relaxing home restrictions, it can still be concluded that PC demand will remain strong. This is very reasonable. Looking forward, suppliers and suppliers will closely balance the needs to meet basic needs without generating Excessive inventory. The continuing shortage in the semiconductor field will only further extend the supplier’s ability to replenish inventory and meet customer orders. We believe that a fundamental change in PCs will lead to more optimistic prospects in the next few years. IDC Global Mobile Device Tracker Program Vice President Ryan Reith.
